Useless posts as new content

Recently, I stumbled upon a post reporting that one’s brain remembers blog posts better than novels. 

My initial response was “Duh.”

After reading the article, my final response was “Duh.”

This got me to thinking, just how many non-informative articles have I read and not remembered? Why exactly do articles proliferate on sites with a respectable degree of credibility?

The answer, of course, is filler. It’s quite difficult to have 100% of quality content. So, to avoid perfect becoming the enemy of the good, it’s understandable why publishers add filler articles. All the bulk, but only enough quality meat that can be mustered in time. It’s better to deliver at least something everyday, than to deliver that perfect jewel one have been polishing for about a week.
